FLU VACCINATION CLINICS

This year the practice is offering two different vaccinations, based on the latest guidance from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.

We will be offering the Fluad vaccination to all patients aged 65 (on or before 31/3/2019) as this has shown to be the most effective for this age group.

For all patients not in this age group, who are eligible for an NHS vaccine, we will be offering Quadrivalent vaccination which offers protection from four different strains of flu.  This is based on the World Health Organisation's recommendation for the 2018/19 season.

We are now taking bookings for flu vaccinations - please contact Reception on 01948 662033 to book your appointment.

EMERGENCY & URGENT TREATMENT

The practice offers a Telephone Access appointment for all patients who require an urgent (same day) appointment. 

We are also fortunate in Whitchurch to have a Minor Injuries Unit based at Whitchurch Community Hospital.  The minor injuries nurses can see you for sprains, lacerations, head injury advice, bites etc.  The unit is currently open from 9 am to 5 pm Monday to Friday.

Dodington Surgery Patient Group

The group was formed in the Summer of 2015 to provide support to the practice.  We have an active group, chaired by Mrs Peggy Mullock.  Recently members of the group had a table at the Friday market to promote the current immunisation campaigns - flu, pneumonia, shingles and meningitis for 18 year olds.  

If you would like to join our group, please contact Elaine Ashley on 01948 662033 or speak to directly to Peggy if you see her out and about!

Whitchurch & District Patient Group

Here at Dodington Surgery we are proud to have a patient group which unites the three practices in Whitchurch.  The group is called the Whitchurch & District Patient Group and provides us with an insight to the views, thoughts and ideas of our patients.

The group held its first meeting in July 2011 and supports the practice in developing and conducting patient surveys.

The group currently meets every six to eight weeks and currently has around a dozen members with an age range of 40 - 80 years.  The group would like to hear more from young families but we appreciate it is not always possible with busy lives to attend meetings.  

f you would like to be more involved but would find attending meetings difficult please contact Elaine Ashley at the practice and we will discuss how your views can be represented in a way that is convenient to you.

Should you wish to join the group please contact Elaine Ashley, Practice Manager on 01948 662033

In September 2015, the group led by Val McKay, our community care co-ordinator, organised the 'Keeping Well in Whitchurch' event.
